"Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must;
just never give up."

AN ANNUAL TRADITION TO REMEMBER
The Homeland Hospice 5K and Memory Walk began in 2014 when a group of staff and board members at Homeland wanted a signature event that would shed a different light on hospice and be an outreach to the surrounding communities we serve.
What was initially a competitive 5K run and walk has transitioned to include a Memory Walk focusing on our patients and the family members we serve. The foundation of this event is to remember. It is for families to remember their loved ones and for us, as an organization, to remember and honor the community and people we are blessed to care for on a daily basis.
We are grateful for the generous support of local businesses and individuals who make this special annual Homeland tradition possible.
REMEMBER A LOVED ONE
In addition to walking or running at the event, you can add your loved one’s name to the front of this year’s t-shirt. By donating $25, you will support those who need care today and have your honoree’s name added to the t-shirts given to each registrant. Funds raised support Homeland Hospice supportive services like massage, music therapy and additional in-home relief hours as well as residents of Homeland Center whose financial resources have been exhausted.
